Tortellini Soup Recipe

Sharing is Caring

This Tortellini Soup Recipe is a delicious flavorful soup made with sausage, tortellini pasta, Italian herbs and spinach.

We are coming up on soup season again, and as the weather drops, I am going through my soup recipes. Ready to post new and to revive the classics. There are so many to choose from, it can be hard to select which ones to share here.

In Italy, tortellini is often served in a broth or a creamy cheese style sauce. In the states we are more familiar with the creamy cheese sauce. Realizing this, I decided to give a shot in creating a soup by combining the broth and tortellini pasta aspect. I was surprised at how simple it all came together. One tip I will give is that if you choose to make this ahead, be sure to save a few cups of broth for reheating as the noodles will absorb the broth in the fridge.

This soup has become a classic in our home. Not only is it easy to make it, it’s hearty and delicious. On a cold winter day nothing is more satisfying then a warm bowl of tortellini soup. So as the weather drops and the sweaters are rehung, be sure to save this one for your meal rotation. After all, it is a recipe worth sharing.

What You Will Need To Make This Tortellini Soup Recipe

1- 20 oz (567g) package Tortellini pasta

1 lbs (454g) Italian sausage (crumbled style or links without the casing)

1 cup (240g) of water

1 tbsp (5.5g) of dried italian seasoning

5 cups (1,200g) chicken stock

1 bay leaf

Directions

In a large pot add the Italian sausage and begin browning over medium heat. If using links make sure to remove the casing and break down the sausage as it cooks.

Bring to a bit of a simmer but not a rolling boil. Add your tortellini pasta and let it simmer for about 5 minutes or until they begin floating. About 3 minutes into your tortellini cooking go ahead and add the spinach.

Give it a good stir to combine it. Once the 5 minutes tortellini cooking time is up your soup is ready to serve. 

*If reheating later, be sure to save a few cups of stock as the noodles will absorb the liquid as it sits.
